Default Iceland Express

The airline was established in 2002 and began operations on February 27, 2003 with daily flights to London Stansted and Copenhagen using Boeing 737-300 aircraft wet leased from Astraeus Airlines. This contract was taken over by JetX Airlines and then by Hello. In the Autumn of 2008, Astraeus Airlines resumed operating all flights on behalf of Iceland Express with two Boeing 737-700 aircraft.

Now available in 1/200 scale but bearing a different registration, G-STRE. Also there are slight variations regarding the positioning of the airline name on the fuselage. This production was made for a DAC member who kindly proved the donor model.

That would be me, and I can't thank you enough Mike for your time on these. It means a lot to me to be able to look over and see a reminder of my trip to Iceland - still my favorite holiday I've taken.

G-STRE is safely ensconced in my 'favorites' cabinet in my office now.
